To support Global Connections: Four Artists in New York in the 1920s (working title) at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art. This temporary loan exhibition is based on extensive research into histories of cross-cultural inspiration and influence among four diverse artists during the 1920s: Miguel Covarrubias, Isami Doi, Aaron Douglas, and Winold Reiss. Together these artists, hailing from diverse backgrounds, tell an original story of American art that raises challenging questions about histories of race, representation, and multiculturalism that remain relevant and necessary today. A robust catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
